American Dream

about

A song about the end of the world, and not caring that it's the end of the world. Because of love.

lyrics

When I am all yours and you are all mine
Nothing can stop true love of this kind
If I become deaf, and you become blind
I'll read your lips as you read my mind

Oh your love has got a hold on me
But I can't let it show
Cause you might try to set me free
And I won't let you go

With our white picket fence and our fancy machines
We're living in the American dream
The sky is so blue, the grass is so green
But something's amiss, things just aren't as they seem

Oh the wool was pulled right off of me
But I can't let it show
Cause they might try to bury me
And I won't let it go

As the world ends we'll go out to play
And we'll just pretend it's a beautiful day
With nothing to lose, no reason to pray
I'll kiss your lips as it all blows away

Oh your love has got a hold of me
But I can't let it show
Cause I have never felt so free
And I won't let you go

The world is falling down on me
But I won't let it show
Cause we have never been so free
And I won't let you go

I won't let you go
I won't let you go

about

Daniel Eischeid Edmond, Oklahoma

Nirvana, Weezer, Ozma influenced, melodic, power pop-rock music. Strong melodies, hooks, and good harmony-driven rock. My personal acoustic demos I record on the spot, to give to my band (Starry Skies) to work up drum and bass and guitar tracks for. Some make it to our band's lineup, some don't. They sound very different when finished. Now, full band (solo) demos as well! Please enjoy. ... more
